Video: Bug Out Vehicle Basics
For those preppers who feel there will be a high likelihood of danger in their home front region, and plan to leave for a retreat location at the first sign of trouble, a well equipped bug-out vehicle is a must. We can't all live within walking distance of safe haven wilderness or back-country, so the next best option is to choose and enhance a vehicle that is certain to get you there in one piece. Here is a great video series that will teach you how to do just that...
Vehicle Mods for SHTF
I received this from Anonymous: ”Hey don’t see much on vehicle modifications for survival in case you have to move and live with your vehicle. I added a cargo rack and trunk vault to my SUV. The rack gives me more room to store stuff and use bungees to hold down. The vault lets me store weapons and rounds safely.”
Even More On: Driving: Post-TEOTWAWKI
However, assuming unhindered travels will allow rolling stores of survival gear to pass through any measurable distance unchallenged, is a dangerous assumption. The writer cites experience traveling in a military convoy with hardened, well armed vehicles. But for realistic, civilian style convoys, the dangers are multiplied by lack of experienced scout personnel and soft equipment.
More On: Driving: Post-TEOTWAWKI
Waiting months after TEOTWAWKI to drive to your retreat is more than foolish, it is suicidal. Anyone driving post-event without an armored vehicle (or with one, just look at the ambush scenes from "Patriots") will take casualties. Every day in Afghanistan uneducated people with limited training successfully ambush and kill highly trained military personnel driving heavily armed and armored vehicles.
Driving: Post TEOTWAWKI
The TEOTWAWKI has occurred and you have made the decision to G.O.O.D. and head to your retreat location. The electricity is out, but your vehicles still work. You've stayed in your house for the last few months, kept a low profile, and have been able to avoid the initial chaos and Golden Horde of people leaving the cities. Ideally, your suburban neighbors and relatives are somewhat prepared and you have banded together for protection and mutual sharing of resources. Your retreat location is big enough for your family plus three other families. How do you safely drive everyone to the retreat location?
